In The Pursuit Of Perfection:-
In order to design a perfect sounding product, xDuoo has equipped the TA-10R with the best of the components in the market. It features a premium audio chipset housing a high-performance AK4493 DAC chip from Asahi Kasei Technologies. The decoding chip is paired with a HiFi CPLD chip, Dual active crystal oscillators, and other premium components for a premium high-fidelity output. It has adopted the ECC82/12AU7 tube to process and refine the audio signal.
High-Quality USB Signal Decoding:-
When connected to the USB interface, the TA-10R utilizes the power of a top-level XMOS 8-core chip(XMOS XU208). It enables the device to decode PCM up to 32-Bit/384kHz and DSD up to DSD256 natively. The TA-10R supports USB signal decoding with PC, smartphones(Both Android and iOS).
Class A Amplification:-
In electronics, amplifier classes are letter symbols assigned to different amplification types. The xDuoo TA-10R is a class A amplifier. A class A amplifier conducts through the entire period of a signal resulting in a better output amplification with ultra-low distortion.
Coaxial & Optical Input:-
The latest xDuoo TA-10R now supports Coaxial and Optical audio signal input options. Please note that with the Coaxial & Optical input options, the player can only decode up to 24 Bit/192kHz.
The xDuoo TA-10R features two headphone output ports, one 4-pin XLR balanced port, and the other 6.35mm single-ended headphone output port. The device outputs a humongous output power of up to 2000mW @ 32 Ohm of the load. 2000mW or 2W is actually a lot of power, it can power up any of your demanding headphones with ease. xDuoo suggests up to 600 Ohm headphone pairing with the device.
Pricing & Availability:-
The xDuoo TA-10R has got a price tag of 299.90$. At its price point, the TA-10R is a fabulous tube amplifier with a high-quality audio chipset. Grab it today!! Check out more details here.
